Kylie Jenner is hoping to do her part in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The beauty mogul announced that she will be donating hand sanitizer to healthcare employees on the front line.
Kylie and momager Kris Jenner are teaming up with Coty Inc. to manufacture the hand sanitizer.
Coty Inc. is a major stakeholder in Kylie’s beauty empire, including Kylie Skin and Kylie Cosmetics. The reality TV star recently sold a 51 percent stake in her beauty business to the global beauty giant for $600 million.
Coty had already begun their own hand sanitizer production as of last week. The global beauty giant announced that it would be providing sanitizer to “medical and emergency services staff,” as well as to people in need and their own employees who were responsible for making the product. The company has already switched some of its facilities to producing hydro-alcoholic gel production, as of last week.
Now, Coty will also be helping Kylie and Kris Jenner manufacture their hand sanitizer, as well. It will be donated to hospitals in southern California.
According to a press release, “The custom hand sanitizer includes a special message for recipients: ‘Dedicated to first responders working to support our communities.'”
You’ll still be able to order your vanilla milk toner and dry skin body wash, though. A rep has confirmed that the hand sanitizer will not affect production of Kylie Skin products. The fulfillment center for Kylie Skin also remains open.
It is worth noting, though, that fulfillment centers for both Kylie Cosmetics and Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty line have halted, thanks to California’s statewide shelter-in-place order.
Kylie and sister Kim K have both already donated some cold, hard cash to coronavirus relief efforts, too.
Kim Kardashian West announced that her SKIMS shapewear line will be donating $1 million. The money will specifically benefit families affected by COVID-19.
The day before, Kylie also announced a $1 million donation for relief efforts. The beauty mogul’s donation will be used to purchase thousands of face masks, face shields, and other protective gear. It will all go to healthcare professionals battling the outbreak on the front lines.
The doctor who delivered Kylie’s daughter, Dr. Thais Aliabadi, said she was “speechless” by Kylie’s donation.
“From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU Kylie Jenner. You are my hero,” Dr. Aliabadi said. “This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much.”
